If you’re like me, you tend to wear a lot of black during winter. Anytime I pack for my cold-weather New York trips, I find myself reaching for all the black in my wardrobe. But as chic as black is, it does nothing for me with brightening my mood.
Sometimes after the holidays, I get into a little funk. It hasn’t been too bad this year, thankfully, but in past years it majorly hit me. I wrote a whole blog post on four ways to get out of a funk. Another thing that can help with moody blues? Cheerful colors! And I find the easiest way to do this during winter is with a colorful sweater.
Whether it’s purple, like my purple turtleneck sweater, or any other color of the rainbow, a colorful piece of clothing can instantly elevate your mood. You can pair a sweater with your black pants or pencil skirt for work. Or wear it with jeans over the weekend. I made my skinny jeans and sweater combo a little fancier with suede pumps and a faux leather trench coat. It’s unfortunately sold out but I love this patent leather version and tan leather trench.
Pick a sweater in a super soft material and you’ll increase all the fuzzy feels! Here are some colorful sweaters I’m loving right now in all of the cheerful hues:
